The six shooter is a weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It can be obtained from the saw table in South Plaza after defeating Seymour Redding during the mission WWJWD?.

It appears as an engraved Colt Single Action Army .45 Colt Revolver holding 60 rounds. Against zombies, each shot will award 10 PP, and will cause their heads to explode on headshots. It is quite effective against psychopaths, allowing the player to engage them from medium to long range, and dealing enough damage that the six shooter alone is usually enough to defeat any boss.

Its ammo count is doubled if the player is wearing the Soldier of Fortune Skills Pack.


Dead rising six shooter main
  • Main: Tap X/Square to fire at a nearby enemy.

  • Ranged: Hold Ltrigger/L2 to go into aim mode, then tap X/Square or pull Righttrigger/R2 to shoot at a manual target.


  • The six shooter is based on the real-life Colt Single Action Army.
    • It appears to resemble the Single Action Army model from in the game Metal Gear Solid 3, due to the fact that they both have tactical engravings on them.
  • Owing to its large capacity, effectiveness against zombies, and ability to eliminate any psychopath on its own, including two of the most difficult, Dwight Boykin and Sullivan, the six shooter is likely the most effective ranged weapon in Dead Rising 2.
  • The Broken Butterfly is the Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop equivalent to the six shooter.
  • This weapon is one of 7 weapons in which a player cannot have more than one. If a player is carrying this weapon, the weapon will not respawn anywhere, prohibiting the player from carrying another one. These weapons are: Magician Sword, Shopping Valuables, Giant Pink Chainsaw, Rocket Launcher (from World's Most Dangerous Trick), Six Shooter, and the LMG. All magazines also have this restriction.[1]
  • It can be given to a survivor to carry, allowing the player to transport multiple six shooters.
  • When stationary, the player will fire the six shooter from the hip like a gunslinger from the American West.
  • There is a weapon in the Dead Rising 2 game files called the "HangmanGun", which is the gun that Seymour Redding uses during his boss battle. The weapon can be picked up. If the player attempts to fire, the player's character model will go permanently into firing position. See pictures in the gallery below.
